In Celebration of All That Burdens Us, Segun Oguntola, 1592320848


FROM THE PUBLISHER

In Celebration of All that Burdens Us brings together some of the writings of Ségun Ògúntólá, a rising star in African literature. It is a wondrous collection ranging from the personal to the societal, the worldly to the spiritual and celebrating matters of the heart, the pursuit of knowledge. There is pain in it, there is pleasure in it, and there is knowledge in it.

The collection includes the poignant "The Broken Hearted", and "Blues for Ségun" (both described by a reviewer as "Fresh and universal, a rare combo"); the pious "Dusza", and "On a Night Journey, a Scene Witnessed, Chorus Heard" (homage to the great Polish filmmaker Krzysztof Kieslowski, and Martin Luther King, Jr., respectively); the reflective "The Other Immigrant"; the otherworldly "The Black hole Days" (an invitation into the life of a recent immigrant in "glorious" New York City).
Perhaps the star of the collection is the heartening "The Thoughts of a Man Who Recently Reunited with His Destiny" (penetrating in its insight into the mind of a cruel man on the verge of redemption).

In Celebration of All that Burdens Us heralds the emergence of a promising writer, a novel voice.

Ségun Ògúntólá was born in Lagos, Nigeria. He read International Studies at CUNY. He was a World Affairs Fellow of the Ralph Bunche Institute on the United Nations. His works have been published in, among others, Ictus Review, QBR the Black Book Review and the African.
He lives in New York City.
